“October Shadows”

“October Shadows: A Night With History”

and Paranormal Lamplight Tour

From 1852 to 1968, this grand home at 514 North 6th Street saw many residents come and go. Learn more about those individuals with a new twist to our annual “Paranormal Lamplight Tour.” After a pizza party in the gazebo, we’ll gather in the large Servant Quarters for an attempt to call forth some of those historic characters. Our “Ouija board” will be artifacts from the home’s eras that just might interest a few particular spirits.

Make reservations ($15) by calling 783-3000 or registering online below.

The 6:30 p.m. tour for Oct. 30 is full. The 9:15 p.m. tour-only ($10) still has openings.
